In this 1998 re-imagining of the original The Professionals TV show, CI5 now has an international remit, being jointly funded by the governments of the UK, U.S.A., Japan, Germany and France, and called upon to deal with terrorism and espionage on an international scale. An all-new cast features the original dynamic of two gung ho field agents (these a former U.S. Navy Seal and a British secret service man) and a cantankerous boss, but adds the dynamic of a female agent, a computer and martial arts expert who came to CI5 by way of the Canadian Secret Service. Expectations were high, but the new show failed to capture the imagination of viewers and only one season was made.

I needed one episode, or to be exact 15 minutes of it, to decide that this it not worth my time.

As a successor to the original Professionals this is an epic failure. Thin charaters, poor acting, weak story - the whole setup is wrong. Even if you view it as a stand alone show - this is bad with a capital "B". There are better shows of that genre. I can absolutely understand this didn´t get more than 13 episodes.

After going through the first and part of the second episode I quit.
